Only You are the Saviour as only You, LORD JESUS CHRIST, will SAVE: we are washed clean by Your blood and resurrected in Your body! Fill us with Your Holy Spirit without measure, make us to hear Your voice and to know and obey all Your commandments henceforth forevermore that we only do those things that are well pleasing in Your sight, Almighty God. Bless all who labour for You LORD whether they be in spirit or in body. Make us to love according to Your will, LORD. Make our days here to be few.
